Respite Therapy Program

We are proud to announce our newest program, the Saturday Respite Therapy Program!

Society for disABILITIES is pleased to announce that we have partnered with Genesis Behavior Center to run a respite therapy program for children with Autism on Saturdays starting October 19, 2019. This program is for children 2-12 years old on the Autism spectrum. The program is staffed by Genesis employees who will provide onsite therapy for children while parents/guardians get some respite time for themselves. All therapy sessions will be held at the Genesis Behavior Center in Turlock between 9:00AM-5:00PM and only costs $5!

To qualify, the child MUST LIVE in one of the “19 Zip Code Coverage Areas” listed below:
95301, 95303, 95307, 95313, 95315, 95316, 95322, 95324, 95326, 95328, 95334, 95358, 95360, 95363, 95374, 95380, 95381, 95382, 95388

**Please note: parents/guardians should expect to stay for 20-30 minutes at the FIRST respite day to visit with therapists and discuss the treatment plan(s).

What should your child bring:

  • lunch, snacks, beverages; appropriate for the length of time of respite
  • feeding/eating/drinking tools needed
  • reinforcements; a special toy, snack, etc.
  • any hygiene items needed: diapers, wipes, gloves, etc.
